    Cutting out at idle

    So I turned the engine on today to put a air freshener through the system it done its cold start then when it calmed down it started fluttering then leading to a cut out, Driving it is fine and when I apply gas its fine its just on idle it flutters then leads to a cut out?

    Can you shout out anything that can cause this it has fuel aswell!

    Give the idle air control valve (IACV) a good clean. Either that or you have a massive hole letting in unmetered air, thats my bet.
